Describe how Kling Klang looks like inside?
Ralf Hütter: It's an electronic garden. We like to perform electronic gardening.
The location of the building is a well kept secret?
Ralf Hütter: Sometimes somebody comes all the way from Japan. But the doors are tightly closed and we are never inside on a regular basis. We concentrate ourselves onto the music and not on what's happening outside. We call ourselves Musikarbeiter. Everything with us is about the music.
What a brilliant summary of the ethos behind the electronica. Hutter is one of the co-founders of Kraftwerk and its spokesmodel.
